Are you a student studying programming from home? Are you an employee who is working from home ? Or are you a self-employed freelancer? Has your work shifted during this time?

This is so me

Yeah that's pretty much me.

Although my girlfriend is home more as well, so we play board games or do jigsaw puzzles together more often.

The "During COVID-19" panel for me should be a picture of me trying not to touch my face.

I noticed I became very conscious of it while doing shopping though. At home, nothing much has changed for me. But on the few occasions I go out to do shopping, I'm very careful I don't touch my face after I've taken a shopping basket and I wash my hands as soon as I get home.

It'e probably better to wash your hands as soon s you leave the shops, if possible. Unfortunately, only the larger shops have WCs.

Well, if you didn't bring gloves you're back at zero if you have to use a knob to open the door.

I don't think the virus affects moose. Flies maybe, but the fly is too small to put a mask onto.

Well, the moose can always lead by example

I think the best way to eliminate possibly virus transfer from doorknobs is to use explosives. No door, no knob,

I did bring a small bottle of alcohol and some paper towels with me on the weekly shopping trip. Was good to see quite a few patrons wearing gloves, as were some cashiers. The place where I usually go had been providing sanitisers by the front door, but I didn't see any last time. Maybe they ran out. State law requires publically-accessible restrooms in all businesses, including shops, so that's not an issue here, but the restroom is typically in the back, so you still have to navigate the store after washing.

I have no idea what the people buying up all that bottled water are at. We may not have the best-tasting municipal water here, but it's OK, and even hurricanes with multi-day power outages have never interrupted it.

A Senator from the US Midwest has suggested that people deal with the TP shortage via a traditional method: corncobs. Oddly, no one has suggested the Muslim route: using stones. I can laugh. Installed bidets about 2 years back.

Around here, I would presume the sanitiser had been stolen.

Maybe because they don't have bidets.
